Will Gaoqi be available again in the future?
Earlier there were some trains from Xiamen Gaoqi station, but not all trains to Beijing depart from Xiamen North.

I’m afraid no. Xiamen Gaoqi was used to be a freight station. In order to relieve the passenger flow pressure of Xiamen railway hub, Gaoqi station began to be transformed into a passenger station in January 2011. Later, the new Xiamen North station was completed, and then Gaoqi stopped to handle the passenger transportation business from Mar 14, 2015. Now only two stations can be used in Xiamen, they are Xiamen station and Xiamen North station.

You can use bus K901 or K602 to reach Quanzhou Station, it should take around 1.5 to 2 hours on the way. Ticket is CNY4 or 7. Or you can use Jinjiang Station which should be closer to the airport. You can use bus No. 21, but may still around 1.5 hours on the way, CNY2 per person.

Answered by Jennifer from DENMARK | Aug. 15, 2019 18:14

Yes, you can collect the ticket from another railway station in advance, for example, a few days in advance. If you collected ticket before travel date, with paper ticket in hand, 30 to 40min at station should be OK unless you are traveling during holiday time. If you decide to collect ticket on the day of travel, maybe 1.5 hours at station is needed.

I suppose it may around CNY80 if count by the distance. Or you may consider to use the metro service to Zhenhai Road and then walk to the ferry terminal or your hotel nearby.

No idea of "Kooi Hong" village. From Xiamen to Nanan, you could take train from Xiamen or Xiamen North to Quanzhou.
